Here is a look back at some of the best and most popular looks and trends of 2011...
Sequin Gowns: Some of my favorites were Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad & Angelina Jolie in Versace.
Leather Minis: One of my favorites was Blake Lively in Gucci Resort.
Color Blocking: In general Gucci made color blocking very trendy this year, but the combination of Pink & Orange was the most popular.
Peplum Dresses: The particular silhouette style has been around for decades but became popular once again in 2011. My personal favorite was Dianna Agron's Stella McCartney dress & everyone loved Emma Stone's Giambattista ensemble.
Menswear: All of the girls of Hollywood were suited up this year but only a few pulled it off nicely. Rihanna stunned everyone with this chic and sexy all white suit by Max Azria.
Houndstooth Print: The most popular Houndstooth dress had to be Salvatore Ferragamo's-- Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Hart, and many others all wore the same exact one!
Neon Colors: I have never seen a cuter dress than Emma Watson's Marchesa neon mini! Actually I loved all of these bold and brave neon looks, especially Michael Kors collection.
Sheer Gowns: This was probably my favorite trend of the year and Gucci & Gabbana dominated the red carpet with their sexy sheer looks!
Polka Dots: I never expected Polka Dots to become so popular but they did, thanks to Stella McCartney who added a little sex appeal to the usually juvenile print.
Bold Prints: Stars, Cats, Horses, Flowers, and Tribal prints were some of the most popular prints of the year. Once again Gabbana proved to be very popular & trendy with its many star covered dresses and floral/animal combo.
Red Jeans: Aren't just for rockers and skaters anymore but fashionista's too. I loved this trend because you could dress it up or down and still look fab!
On second thought make that looks of the day...The Kardashian family held their annual Christmas Party over the weekend and the whole family just looked stunning! I know it's not so surprising anymore since the girls of the family always look good, but they have impressed me yet again with their style. However, Khloe Kardashian was noticeably missing.

Lea Michele and her fellow Glee cast mate, Chris Colfer, sat down for an interview on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live w/Andy Cohen". And only someone like Lea Michele could pull of this gorgeous sparkling mini by Jenny Packham. The dress is from the Spring 2012 collection and her shoes are by Christian Louboutin. A dress like this would be perfect for tomorrow on NYE!
This has really been Rosie's year! She went from (little-known) Victoria's Secret model, to A-List movie star thanks to her breakout role in Transformers. Now Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can be seen on countless magazine covers and in numerous fashion editorials! I don't think a month went by where she wasn't on some cover of a fashion mag. She is even featured on a few covers from next year's magazine issues! Here is a little rundown on some of her best covers of 2011.

This year everyone wanted to be a red-head! And quite honestly I think the color is gorgeous--if I could pull it off I would probably dye my hair red too! Hollywood has its well known, natural red-headed ladies like, Lindsay Lohan, Isla Fisher, Adele, Marcia Cross, and Christina Hendricks. But ladies with faux red-hair, like Emma Stone, are becoming very popular too. Here is a list of some celebs who daringly went red in 2011. Let me know who you think pulled it off the best!
Emma Stone, who is a natural blonde, went back to red this year
Blake Lively dyed her hair for a movie role and was dubbed "The Little Mermaid" soon after
Khloe Kardashian briefly went red this summer and I personally liked it
Disney's Debby Ryan is one of those girls who can pull off any hair color--she has been blonde, brunette, and now red
Scarlett Johansson, also dyed her hair for a movie role, & I think it would look much better if longer
Demi Lovato went for an edgier and darker look which I absolutely love
Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihanna...I hated her red hair at first (I still do at times) but I prefer her darker burgundy shades much more than the fire engine red she first sported
